How to add a POP email account in Outlook on iOS and Android. If you decide to add a POP email account to your iOS or Android device so you can have your email locally on the device, we will show you how to use Outlook.com to do this.

Add email accounts to Outlook.com

To do this, you need a Microsoft email account, for example outlook.com, live.com o hotmail.com. If you don't have one,.

Go to and sign in with your Microsoft account. If you have an Office 365 subscription, it is best to use the email address associated with the subscription. This way, you get the premium version of Outlook.com which is ad-free and offers advanced security features.



To make your POP email account available in Outlook for iOS or Android, you need to add it as a linked account in Outlook.com. Then, Outlook will see the connected account and allow you to add it.

In Outlook.com, click the icon Settings (gear) in the upper right corner of the window. Then, click View all Outlook settings .

On the screen Settings , click Mail to the left, Synchronize email in the middle, then up Other email accounts under Linked Accounts to the right.

You can add a Gmail account, but for our example, we'll add a personal email address in a custom domain.

On the page Connect your account , enter a Visualized name . This is the name recipients will see when they receive an email from you.

Then, enter the address e -mail and Password for the email account you want to link to your Outlook.com account.

Note: If you've enabled two-factor authentication for your connected email account, you need to create an app password for that account to use in Outlook.com. In another browser tab, go to your email provider's account security page and create an app password for Outlook.com. Then, go back to the Outlook.com tab and enter your app password in the box Password in the dialog box Connect your account.



If you want to keep the email for the linked account separately from the Microsoft account emails, select Create a new folder for the imported email, with subfolders such as the account you are connecting . The other option will combine all emails from both accounts.

If you are adding an email address that is not from a common or well-known email provider, you will probably need to manually enter the POP settings. Check the box Manually configure your account settings Click OK .

In Choose the type of connection , select the POP / SMTP connection settings .

Enter the server and port information in entry and take the exit (uscita) . You can get this information from your provider if you don't already have it.

If you don't want people to see your Outlook.com address (or other Microsoft email address) when you send an email using the connected account on Outlook.com, select Send e-mails using your provider's server . Click OK .

On the screen synchronization email , do click su Save if you have made any other changes to the settings. Then, click the button Close ( X ).

If you have chosen to store the email for your linked account in a separate folder, you will see the email address listed below Folders and Incoming mail under the email address. click on Mail in arrival to view messages for the linked account.

If your linked email address did not appear below Folders on the left, click the image or initials in the top right and click Exit. Then,.

You will see your connected POP email account in the folder list in the menu with the Mail in arrival under the email address. Tap In arrival to see the email messages for that account.

If you already have one or more email addresses in Outlook for iOS, you won't see the screen Accounts found . But you can add your linked POP email account in the settings.
